Another new trooper

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to say hello to all my fellow Sandies. Life goal achieved of joining the 501st Legion as a Sandtrooper. I was just approved earlier this month. I am from the Northern Darkness Garrison in Indiana USA. While it is just basic approval I took screen accuracy very serious in my build. It is an AM armor and helmet. My blaster is a Hyperfirm that was delivered in August just before they went defunct. Pauldron is by Trooper1. Large Spanish pouch (not visible in pic below) from Blaster 8266. My helmet is entirely hand painted by me. Never done anything like this before, but it was a very rewarding experience. Over the last 6 months of the build I have looked at almost every build thread here on MEPD for details and guidance. I'm especially grateful to SWAT #47 (TD-84414) for inspiration. I have tried to achieve a reasonable facsimile of the Road Block Captain Version 2.

Congratulations! , and welcome to the dirty side! Nice work, your kit looks great. The cheese grater hand plates aren't seen as often as I think they should.. lol.. awesome to see another trooper wearing them.
Will you be going for PO? If so, looking forward to your build.

Jon.

Thanks everyone for the kind words!

I really like the cheese grater aesthetic as well. I need to find a set of them in latex.

I am debating PO, I really want to do it. But I have back problems, not sure how well I can deal with the extra weight. We shall see.

:td:

Don't worry, you don't have to wear the pack at every event you attend, just for the photos, the rest of the time you can use it as a displaypiece. :D
